The coronavirus has caused us to intently focus on our own health and of those we love. At Greenwood, that focus naturally extends to all who share a connection to this historic oasis including our staff, volunteers, members, donors, trustees, and advisory board members. We sincerely hope you are safe and healthy at this unprecedented moment in our history and look forward to when we can be together again in the garden.
April 22 – Earth Day – also shines a spotlight on the health of an equally if not more important part of all our lives: the environment. Since 1970, countries all around the world have been using this day to celebrate and raise awareness about the need to protect the environment, a cause to which we feel deeply connected: conserving and preserving Greenwood’s unique site was the impetus for Peter P. Blanchard Jr. to ensure its legacy as a sanctuary for all to enjoy. It is therefore with gratitude that we present this on-line program featuring award-winning Broadway actress, Beth McCourt, singing her lilting rendition of “Edelweiss” from The Sound of Music in Greenwood’s London Plane Allée (video link at right). We hope it brings you a sense of peace, joy and restoration during this uncertain time.
With warm wishes,
Abby O’Neill, Executive Director
